Eau Claire (WQOW) - Plans to improve Pinehurst Park, in Eau Claire, get a boost thanks to a donation from a local man.

Arthur "Gene" Rogers, from Eau Claire, recently donated stock valued at $10,839.71 to the Pinehurst Park Project. The gift is in memory of his wife, Irene, who learned to ski at the park years ago.

The Pinehurst Project is a grassroots effort to make improvements to the park. The project will revamp the former ski hill to a site where people can enjoy tubing, skiing and snowboarding.
